“Religions are different roads converging to the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads as long as we reach the same goal? In reality, there are as many different religions as there are individuals!”

Who leads Religious Education at Clockhouse?
My name is Mrs Fletcher and I lead RE across the school. I am passionate about RE because I like learning about different religions and how religions are similar and different. We can use our learning in RE to learn about different groups of people and have a better understanding of different world religions.
My name is Miss Burrell and I am the RE coordinator. I like learning about people and their cultures. I think that it is an important part of the curriculum because it helps the children to be become tolerant members of society.
What is Religious Education all about at Clockhouse?
Our RE curriculum ensures that the children are provided with a high-quality religious education which inspires them to develop a curiosity and fasciation about the world religions that will remain with them for the rest of their life. RE contributes dynamically to children’s education in schools by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.
We encourage the children to ask questions about the religions they study and to discuss what they have found out.
We aim to equip the children with a basic understanding of a range of religions in order for them to have a fact-based understanding and to question other things which they might have heard from other sources.
It is our intention to provide a broad and engaging curriculum to ensure that children develop a love of learning and strong grounding for future success.
We believe that it is important to celebrate all religions represented in our school.
We take any forms of religious prejudice very seriously and will take the opportunity to address misconceptions the children may have.
We want to expose the children to the rich and diverse country they live in and how to show respect to everyone. We want them to act with sensitivity when asking questions and to be confident enough to ask these questions in the first place.
